By E. C. Slater (auth.), S. Papa, B. Chance, L. Ernster (eds.)

This quantity relies at the court cases of a global Symposium on "Cytochrome platforms: Molecular Biology and Bioenergetics" that used to be held at Selva di Fasano close to Bari, Italy, among April 7 and 11,1987. It includes papers masking the topics mentioned on the Symposium, contributed either via contributors of the assembly and through a few invited audio system who weren't in a position to attend. the purpose of the Symposium used to be to collect specialists in a variety of rese­ arch innovations at the moment being utilized to the examine of cytochrome structures, together with molecular genetics, protein chemistry, enzymology of electron move and protonmotive task in energy-transducing organic mem­ branes. as a result excessive measure of complexity of cytochrome platforms and the expanding sophistication lately of the various experimen­ tal ways, there was a starting to be specialization - occasionally even an inclination to "over-specialization" - between scientists operating during this box. This in itself appeared to justify a gathering the place representatives of assorted disciplines may well trade their effects and talk about their conclusions. additionally, and maybe even extra importantly, it used to be felt that conferences of this sort provide a chance for a "cross-fertilization" of methods and concepts between representatives of varied fields of technology. the current assembly proved to be an considerable representation of the luck of such an inter­ action.

Furthermore, cytochrome c 2 is also involved in aerobic growth where it was thought to carry electrons from the 1:'6tochrome bc 1 complex to the terminal oxidase (Fig. 1). Therefore, in R. capsulatus, the known as cytochrome b410 presence of cytochrome c 2 was considered obligatory for photosynthesis and for cytochrome oxidase 410-dependent respiration. These conclusions were partly based on spectrpfcopic analyses of non photosynthetic mutants, such as MT113, lacking c 2 However, recent studies using MT113 revealed that this strain lacks not only cytochrome c 2 but most of the other known c-type cytochromes, incl1f~ing cytochrome cl' and it does not contain a functional bc 1 complex.
